Our Foundation is governed by an elected board whose members serve as advocates for the University of South Florida, its colleges, campuses and units. Each volunteer board member is vitally interested in the welfare of higher education in the greater Tampa Bay area and throughout the state of Florida. They are guided by a mission to promote private philanthropic support, advocate for the University and manage the University’s endowment.
The board includes some of USF’s most enthusiastic supporters and the community’s top leaders. The primary objective and purpose of the board is to raise and administer private gifts to assist in the promotion and financial support of the University’s teaching, research and public service activities.
